LOVE TAGplorations ....... 7 day event

Happy Thursday,

And welcome to the LOVE TAGplorations 7 day Blog Hop event with the STAMPlorations girls.
Yes ..... seven days filled with tag making fun, showcasing lots of Love-themed or Valentine's Day tags.

It's Day 2 today and I'm joining in the fun with a cute little tag for you.  If you missed yesterday's projects don't worry ...... you can catch up here.

I love this set of Nesting Tag Dies ..... I've used the largest one for my tag, cut from Kraft card

I stamped one of the balloons from the Balloons and Banners stamp set  across the bottom of the tag, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and then added colour using Prismacolor Pencils

I stamped the heart shaped balloon (from the same stamp set) onto the tag, heat embossed in white as before and coloured with the pencils again.

I added a layer of glossy accents to the red balloons .... just look how they shine ......

The edges of the tag have been inked with a little Festive Berries Distress Ink and then I doodled the faux stitching around the edge using a white gel pen

To finish off I added some words (from the STAMPlorations Rosebuds .... from the Bees Knees range) and a few dots of white gel pen here and there ......

You can all join in the fun too ...... hop over to the participating blogs and leave a comment, or why not create a tag and join in through the linky party.

Commenting and linking up is available until February 14th so there's lots of time.
